Jakarta, IO – Free trip for motorcyclists initiated by Transportation Ministry departed from Tanjung Priok Port, North Jakarta on Tuesday (26/4) from the Nusantara passenger terminal.
PT Pelni Yahya Kuncoro director of passenger transport business said there were not many passengers for today’s departure. He predicted the number will increase significantly a couple of days before Eid.
“Because it’s not close to D-day yet, maybe many of them are still working,” said Yahya on Tuesday (26/4).
The Dobonsolo ship departed at 13.00 WIB sailing the route of Tanjung Priok – Semarang – Surabaya – Makassar – BauBau – Ambon – Sorong – Serui – Jayapura (return), with the passengers divided into two categories: 686 passengers alongside 317 motorcycles and 686 general passengers.
